SCT Collimation under Adverse Circumstances

Disassembly, transport, and other adjustments to SCTs may result in gross miscollimation, where no "classic doughnut" is available to help in the adjustment process.

Orion 18mm Epic ED2 vs. Smart Astronomy 19mm Extra Flat Field (EF)

If you’re on a tight budget, but looking for something better than inexpensive plossls, the Orion Epic ED2 line and the Smart Astronomy EF line may fall into your price range. Eyepieces from both lines can be purchased for less than $100 and therefore won’t break the bank.
